If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy.

Susie and Daniel ready to fly into the fight...

As you may already know, Gene Wilder passed away this week from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was a great actor who was in a lot of great movies, but my favorite (at the moment, at least) is his role in Blazing Saddles. But really, if you told me his best role was in ______ movie, I’d have a hard time arguing with you. He was a funny man and he will be missed.

I don’t want to leave you on a sad note, so I’ll point out that the FBS season gets started tonight when The Revolutionary War Heroes of the University of South Carolina go on the road to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores! I can’t wait to see what kind of season our (state of) South Carolina football teams are going to have this year. Hopefully they (excluding Coastal Carolina) will all have great seasons.
